a glimpse into cryptic thought of the reticence
26 Aug 2021 | this is how
As always, when it came to speaking and attempting to engage another’s affections, circumstances doomed me to striving and anxiety.
I speak when there’s something to say and expect to be listened to. Some people speak as a performance and don’t understand why others don’t perform the same way. When there’s constant talking, information is not exchanged because talking just becomes constant empty noise.
True friends sit in silence. Small talk is for both: Strangers and con men.
